Release date - June 7 2016

Imogen and her sister Marin have escaped their cruel mother to attend a prestigious artists’ retreat, but soon learn that living in a fairy tale requires sacrifices, be it art or love in this haunting debut fantasy novel from “a remarkable young writer” (Neil Gaiman).

What would you sacrifice in the name of success? How much does an artist need to give up to create great art?

Imogen has grown up reading fairy tales about mothers who die and make way for cruel stepmothers. As a child, she used to lie in bed wishing that her life would become one of these tragic fairy tales because she couldn’t imagine how a stepmother could be worse than her mother now. As adults, Imogen and her sister Marin are accepted to an elite post-grad arts program - Imogen as a writer and Marin as a dancer. Soon enough, though, they realize that there’s more to the school than meets the eye. Imogen might be living in the fairy tale she’s dreamed about as a child, but it’s one that will pit her against Marin if she decides to escape her past to find her heart’s desire.

Love, love, love the sound of this and can't wait to get my hands on a copy. Love stories about sisters, thrown in a fairy tale slant too and I'm there!


  1. Haven't heard of this one. I hope you enjoy it when you get it! My WOW

  2. I have wanted this for some time but it is still such a long wait. Hope we both love it. The cover is so creepy - and I love creepy.

  3. It sounds interesting and furthermore a word from Neil Gaiman, I have high expectations.
